Come relax in our world-famous enchanted 5 acre subtropical haven! Laze by the pool or swing in the hammocks...

Welcome to the Arts Factory Backpackers Lodge. Soak up the friendly atmosphere for which we are universally famous.

In the 70's, a group of hippies, locals and international artists created the 'Arts Factory'! In the 80's it was an internationally recognized rock and roll venue. This is the birthplace of much of the fame and spirit of Byron Bay and it still maintains that original spirit today.

Located only 10 minutes' walk from the beach, we offer a wide range of groovy accommodation and funky abodes, ranging from teepees, island bungalows, dorms, doubles and even jungle camping.

Our funky workshops include didgeridoo-making and yoga. Join in a game of table tennis, basketball or volleyball. Jump in our heated pool. Hang out in hip Byron Bay or relax on the spectacular beaches only ten minutes' walk away.

If you are musically inclined, come and record your songs in paradise at Buzz Studio, the Arts Factory's very own recording studio!

Every evening in the Buddha Bar you can enjoy DJs, bands and live performances, as well as the Zany Talent Show every Monday night.

We are an integral part of the Arts Factory Village which incorporates the Historic Buddha Bar Restaurant, The Byron Lounge Cinema and Buddha Gardens Day Spa.

Don't miss the experience of a lifetime! Come stay with us ...relax, rejuvenate, recycle!
Prices are per person per night.
